Helping your child feel like a kid again

We believe a patient’s surroundings have a profound healing effect on both mind and body. Our family-centered approach to care helps to comfort our young patients, from the healing garden, reflecting pond, and art throughout the campus, to the youthful decor in the patient rooms. Our expressive therapists bring art, music and dance to the bedside. Pet therapy expands our concept of an ideal healing environment.
